Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLSS Built-In Dishwasher
I own 2 model KUDS01FLSS1 KitchenAid Superba Dishwashers. The first unit had the clean light blinking so I read the post below and reset it. I thought everything was fine after the reset seeing that the wash cycle started. The problem was about half way during the cycle it shuts down and the "Clean" light starts blinking again. Yes no clean dishes. This last time the water was actually hot or the rinse was but thinking it is not even allowing it to rinse since stuff is still not clean. After looking at the other problems and recommendations it looks like the heating element could be bad on this one. What type of diagnostic can I do hear to determine if it is the heating element or something else? Is the heating element pretty straightforward to fix? The other unit just won't start even though everything appears to be fine. It was working and decided to stop working. The lights are fine meaning the "Clean" light does not blink but even after reseting that unit there is no noise when the "normal" or start or combination of those too buttons are pushed. This one could be the door latch or maybe one of those cable things I read about in another post. Please advise what I should do with this one. My concern with sending a tech out I could run in to a thousand bucks in fixing the two when I should go out and buy something new that will be under warranty at least. Doubt I will purchase another KitchenAid based on review.s I have read lately

gagaweaver, couple of things you want to check here. Check the upper spray arm for any clogged holes or cracks along the edges. Position it in the 12:00 position and run the dishwasher for a little, open the door and verify that it has rotated. Make sure the water entering the dishwasher is min. 120 degrees, use a thermometer. Makes sure that there is no large pans or dishes blocking the upper spray arm from spraying onto the inner door. If all that checks out. You will have to remove the lower spray arm, filter cover and chopper cover to make sure the chopper screen is not coated or plugged up. If it is, it will prevent a good flow of water to the upper spray arm. Catriver..post back.

The keypad interface is bad, you would need to replace that and then it should work great. Let me know if you run into any trouble or have further questions and I would be glad to help.

Unscrew and remove the kickplate at the very bottom of the dishwasher. The tech sheet with the diagnostic code should be attached to the back of it. If not, due a websearch and you should be able to find the info on yahoo or google.

Great job walking through the possible causes! Hey, it is time to check the heating element itself. First visually, looking for brakes and then feeling for "bubbles" on the round element rod. Also see if it moves excessivly when you wiggle.
If no problem obvious, after you disconnect the dishwasher from power, use a multimeter to check for resistance (Ohms) If none, look for broken (heavy guage) wires and replace what's broken - probably the element itself.
If the element checks out good, suspect the thermistor then the controller/PCB.
Good Luck! Please report back what you find, OK?

To reset the dishwasher control you have to press and hold the HEATED DRY button for 15 seconds, if its still not resolved
then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
